the reminders are great indeed. i was ready to flame my teammates, but quickly checked reddit. luckily i saw this post and remembered 'not everyone is global elite in CSGO', so then i quickly changed my ways. all it took was this reminder

also you must be new to the internet if you think saying 'hey we dont do that here' will have any positive effect... lol. if youre gonna stick up for the person being made fun of, you better do it will full commitment & aggression or not at all

Definitely not new to the internet :P. And I have indeed seen it work! But hey, if that language doesn't feel right for you, don't use it. I'm just not an advocate for defending against verbal abuse...with more verbal abuse lol.

What u/aneia said! Thank you so much for saying something so nice! <3 I'm so glad you like the battlepass content. What's your most-wanted item in the current pass?

I submitted some tickets through out, mostly about memory crash dump errors, did any developers, mention these/fix them. Not hating love the game!

We fixed lots of crashes this patch and previous patches. We usually don't put crash fixes in the patch notes since it's impossible for players to know if we fixed their particular crash. We track every single crash and fix ones the biggest ones each patch. Sometimes just having bad memory can cause crashes, if VALORANT crashes often for you consider running a memory test. For context, we expect you to need to play VALORANT for a many many hours before you'd ever see a crash. It's a development metric called Mean time to failure (MTTF) and you can read about it here: ...

I’m soooo glad. For no reason, my FPS would drop at 10-15, which is unplayable (yes, I don’t have a PC made for gaming hahah)

Now, I constantly get 40-50 FPS and it’s SUCH AN AMAZING improvement for the quality of life. I’m know able to play without raging about my FPS’s lmao

Thansk a lot for these changes, it means a lot for me :)

Love to hear it. Honestly this is why we do what we do. It means a lot to hear it.

Hi! Thanks for the hard work over these past few months. I've been enjoying the game a lot.

However my friend seems to be having extreme stuttering issues. I'm certain his PC is capable of running the game, but currently he keeps getting around 20-60fps with extreme frame drops. The game is also taking up around 40% of his CPU.

His specs are I5-7500, a GTX 1660 Ti and 16GB RAM. Any idea as to what could've been causing this? Thanks in advance! :D

I5-7500

I would expect your friend to get much better average and higher performance given these specs. Can you have them contact player support and see if they can gather information and help them?

Off the cuff I'd say check all the settings in game and nvidia control panel to make sure everything is what they expect there.

Unfortunately I can't say :(. But I hope you asking means you loved it!

I love seeing these reminders. Thank you so much :)
If you're interested in helping to shape our community in a positive way, here's a fun fact! Bystander intervention is the most effective method for dissolving a situation with a bully. However, that doesn't mean to start insulting and berating them. Comments like "Hey, we don't do that here," or "They're clearly new, and yelling at them isn't going to help." can be really helpful! (It's better to address the behavior, not the person.) Then, engage with the person who's getting bullied in a positive way. You might root them on, give them gentle feedback on how to improve their gameplay, or even just ask them how their day is going.
Hope this helps :) And thanks again for looking out for our newest recruits!

That hand in the foreground is just ...chef's kiss Well done OP! And thanks for showing our agents and game some love :)

Spike Rush is... not it

Comment
/u/aeneia on Reddit - Thread - Direct

Hey there fam! Something you might consider is that different people want alt game modes for different reasons. In our research, we found a TON. Here are just a few:
- More casual, less intense gameplay
- Lesser time commitment
- More opportunities for creative outplay
- One-for-all style allowing for solo play
- Zero abilities, only gunplay
Spike Rush meets some of these needs, but not all of them. It sounds like it wasn't your jam, and that kinda blows. But hopefully you'll find something that suits you better in the future :)

Thanks so much fam :) We wanted the Battle Pass to be just that: insane player value, especially for the players who invest so much time in our game. And it makes me really happy to know that it feels exactly that way for you :)

What happened to servers?

We've started deploying a fix for players moving forward. Still reviewing players whose contract were put in a weird state.

Originally posted by ArmiesofZNight

We have a fix ready. We're holding off deploying until we get the servers in a better state (reducing the amount of change at once). We're confirming recovery options. We may have to apply updates to players to grant rewards that are currently behind. The initial fix will cover moving forward. Getting clarity on the remedy for those in the current state --we will make sure you get your rewards, just not sure if it will apply with the fix or if we'll need to run some scripts to apply the rewards to the accounts.

Starting deploying of the fix. Americas/Europe/Korea are all deployed. APAC will be out shortly.

This will fix players moving forward. Some players who play another game may get their rewards resolved, but it looks like we have to adjust previous accounts in a more manual way. We are working to resolve those players' issues, but it may take some time today to make sure they're in a good state.

I may just not understand the economics of it all but can someone explain to me why it isn’t possible to just balance the pricing to where they may make less off of whales but widen the circle enough to where more buyers make up for it and even it out?

There’s just no way it is reasonable to constantly monetize games to only appeal to <1% of the games population by making your prices so insanely inflated. What about a $10 price tag or something that ropes in waaay more buyers but reduces dependency on whales?

It’s bizarre to me that the most profitable and satisfying monetization scheme for your playerbase is one that excludes a MASSIVE portion of them.

These numbers that such a small percentage of people spend money on F2P games have to be skewed by their insane financial models that most sane people can’t justify participation in.

I wish the battle pass model was the norm in F2P, as long as the grind is reasonable for working people.

Hey there fam! I know it's common thing for people to assume higher prices means only whales will buy the skins...but that's actually not the case! The research we've done on League shows us that players generally prefer to save up money to buy a really good skin, rather than buy a few cheap, lower-quality skins. This is supported by the fact that players basically stopped buying tiers below League's Epic Tier (1350), thus explaining why 750s and 975s are so rarely available now.
That said, we do want accessible pricing -- so we also have the 875 tier skins (about $8.75 before the VP bundling discount) like Rush, Luxe, and Galleria.
For players who really need the lowest cost options, we have the Battle Pass (which, when completed, grants 11 gun skins), the Character Contracts (which are 100% free, never expire, and grant a free sidearm skin on completion), and a few other things in the works :) Remember, this is just Day 1!
Hope this helps :)

I started out feeling the same way after a couple rounds, but after playing Ascent 4 times in a row it is starting to grow on me. Finding all the cheeky places to use Cypher’s abilities has been great. Thanks for the new map!

There's some incredibly talented Artists, Designers, Engineers, SFX, VFX, QA folks, and Producers that all made it happen. I'm just lucky they let me help :)

We're on this. Fix is out for testing now. Here's what we're prioritising in order:

  1. Earning new content is fixed for affected players
  2. Missed rewards are retroactively granted

Hello sir. What about the prisma skins we had in beta are they completely gone or do we get them back. These skins were so best simplistic looking god skins in the game bring prisma back :)

Glad you enjoyed the skins my friend! All I can say right now is that some content from beta will come back (mostly adjusted I believe) and some won't.

Hey, where do I report bugs? When swapping weapons and using abilities with Raze, it will occasionally bug out and go to my main weapon for 0 reason. It will also graphically glitch aswell while it happens.

Kinda weird then you're trying to put out a bomb bot, and your main weapon shows up as you press C.

There's a bug megathread here that we comb through. I know the formatting ask is a pain, but it helps us reproduce and track issues much faster, and that's actually super helpful when there are as many players and reports as we get.

We've done our best to make sure that the game is in as high a quality state as we can, but realistically, exhaustive testing is impossible, and even if it were possible, we still only have so many hours to fix bugs and build new features etc.

What you're describing sounds like it could be an issue with packet loss or latency where the server and client disagree about what we...

Hey, we've been seeing reports of this happening. What region are you playing in? Can you send me your player name? And what type of stuff were you doing?

Hi everyone, thanks for responding. The chatter you all made on here bought it to our attention while really quickly. And the responses gave the team somewhere to start looking for bugs. I just spoke with the one of the devs working on the issue. They believe they've found the issue and are testing out the patch as I type this.

Thanks!

It's a rough estimate based on total players in queue and rate of players getting in. If we get into a scenario with the queue not draining properly--such as what we were just seeing, this may happen. In normal circumstances it shouldn't constantly refresh.
